	ref Object NumberType


Type: System.Object

The type of number to be converted. Can be any of the following WdNumberType values: wdNumberParagraph, wdNumberListNum, or wdNumberAllNumbers.

There are two types of numbers: preset numbers (wdNumberParagraph), which you can add to paragraphs by selecting a template in the Bullets and Numbering dialog box; and LISTNUM fields (wdNumberListNum), which enable you to add more than one number per paragraph.

The ConvertNumbersToText method is useful if you want to work with a document in another application and that application does not recognize list formatting or LISTNUM fields.

After you convert list numbers to text, you can no longer manipulate them in a list.
